    Database error

    Hello:

    I have installed vbulletin 3.06 with PHP 4.3.10 and MySql 3.23.49 and have this problem: I can properly surf the forum properly with no problem (at least that i'm aware of) but received a cople of mails from the forum saying the following:

    Mail #1:
    Database error in vBulletin :

    Link-ID == false, connect failed
    mysql error:

    mysql error number: 0

    Mail #2:
    Database error in vBulletin :

    Link-ID == false, connect failed
    mysql error:

    mysql error number: 0

    Referer: http://www.motor-mania.net/foro/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=3
    IP Address: x.x.x.x

    I know the second error came up after i tried to access the smilies on the forum because i had to wait a lot for the page to load (but no error was shown on the site).

    I don't know if this error has something to do with version 3.06 because i previously had 3.04 and 3.05 and never had this problem probably because the forum was not beeing used so much.

    I also checked the database and everything seems to work fine.

    Hope you can help me out with this.
    Thank you

    This error means that either the info in your config.php file is wrong (in which case your forums wouldn't work at all) or there is a problem with the MySQL server. If you are sure that the db info is correct then you need to contact your host.

    Note, many servers are being probed for the phpBB worm these days and the MySQL server is being overloaded. This could account for these errors.

      Thank you, i guess it's something to do with the webhost because sometimes it works correct and some others the site loads really slow.

      I'll let them know to see what they can tell me

        Steve, can you elaborate on this a bit. I seem to be having the exact same problem and get between 5 and 50 error messages a day. My board seems to be running ok, although sometimes it does seem to be a bit slow. I have written my hosting service about it and they asked if the problem can be recrested on command. I can't seem to MAKE it cause these errors. Is there something else I should be telling them?

          What needs elaboration? If your forums are running, then the config.php info is fine. This means that the problem is with the server. Forward them everyone of your 'false, connect failed' messages if you want. Honestly I would doubt the competence of a host that doesn't know when their are problems with their own server. But that's just me.
